About the training

Wednesday, October 6; 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm ET

Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, all of us have experienced the changing nature of social connections and many of us have gained personal insight into what it means to be socially isolated, lonely, or both. These are not new concepts that have resulted from the pandemic. However, the pandemic has likely made worse our experience of social isolation and loneliness, and challenged our beliefs about who is socially isolated and lonely. 

This is the final webinar in a four-part national webinar series on research related to social isolation and loneliness for people with disabilities hosted by the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research. Join NIDILRR grantees for a discussion on social isolation and loneliness among caregivers during the COVID-19 pandemic.
